CNN's Don Lemon had Tim Wise, author of "White Like Me," on as a guest the other day. Wise lays it on the line about the direct correlation between the teabagging crowd and racism. (Hat tip to Pam)

Great clip, Bil! (And Pam!!)

I'm really worried about where all the open hostility, hatred, and scarcely contained violence visible at these town-halls--which is a continuation of what we saw at McCain/Palin rallies--is going to lead. It seems to me that we are at a very scary point in American history.

Was that really a CNN host admitting that reporters aren't always objective?

And wow, Tim Wise is *brilliant* here, thanks for the post!
